Almond Nougat

This stuff is so delicious, honestly you’ll be addicted once you try it.
If you like things quite sweet you may want to add a bit more honey to the mixture, just give it a taste before you put the mixture into the tin.

Ingredients
250g cashew butter (here is a recipe to make your own)
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp all spice
¼ cup honey
½ cup coconut flour
1 ½ cups dry roasted almonds, instructions here 

Method

Combine cashew butter, coconut oil, all spice, honey and coconut flour in a bowl until well combined and it makes a consistency slightly wetter than dough.

Roughly chop the almonds, then stir them through the cashew butter mixture until well combined.

Line a bread tin or container of similar size with baking paper. Press the mixture into the tin so it is spread evenly and is smooth on top. Sprinkle with extra chopped almonds if you wish.

Pop in the freezer to set for about an hour.

Once removed from the freezer chop it up then you can store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
You can also freeze this if you want it to last longer.

Lemon Tahini Nougat

Lemon and tahini, two of my favourite things! Speaking of, my best friend Laura and I have started up a little blog called The LM Edit where we share photos of our favourite things and share a little bit about ourselves, we’d love you to check it out.

Now, back to the recipe.

Ingredients
200g Cashew Butter
100g Tahini
Juice of one lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
2 tbsp coconut oil
¼ cup rice malt syrup or honey
1 tsp vanilla essence
¾ cup coconut flour
pinch sea salt

Coconut for sprinkling on top (optional)

Method

Combine all ingredients in a bowl until well combined and it makes a consistency slightly wetter than dough.

Line a bread tin or container of similar size with baking paper. Press the mixture into the tin so it is spread evenly and is smooth on top. Sprinkle with shredded coconut if you wish.

Pop in the freezer to set for about an hour.

Once removed from the freezer chop it up then you can store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
You can also freeze this if you want it to last longer.

Afternoon Delight Smoothie

FullSizeRender
This is one of my favourite smoothie combinations for an afternoon snack. It has a really nice thick consistency which I love. The turmeric adds a nice unusual flavour as well as added health benefits however, if you’re not a fan of the taste I’d leave the turmeric out. Continue reading

Miso Soup with Zucchini Noodles

misoOver the past few months I have been consuming very minimal animal products which has pushed me to get more creative with my meals. This is one of my favourite vegan meals because it’s delicious and It’s a great portable lunch option for work. Just put all the ingredients into a thermos, when you’re ready to eat it add hot water, give it a shake and you’re good to go.
I’ve also added some (non vegan) ingredients below that would go nicely with this recipe. Continue reading

Sweet Tahini Slice

ImageSo I’m going to be honest and admit that this recipe was a total fluke, hence the dodgy photo. I went away this weekend with two friends, Meg from The wholesome Athlete and Steph from That Yoga Feeling. I didn’t have much time to make a snack for us, so I chucked the below ingredients into a food processor and hoped for the best. Turns out these ingredients taste damn good together, needless to say the whole slice was gobbled up very quickly.  Continue reading
